I really had fun with this months theme in my mugrug swap. Halloween is my holiday!!! I mean that! My birthday is a week before Halloween and all my life I felt it was my personal celebration. Sorry if I'm offending all you other Halloween babies out there, but it is my celebration! I have designed so many applique designs for this holiday that all I had to do was raid them and pick what elements I wanted to us. Of course it had to have a frog/toad involved. You will be seeing some of these elements in my Spookytime quilt that is in progress. I stole some of them from that design and just resized them. I sure hope my partner like this. If not she can just send it back! What you can't see is the quilting. It's done in a spider web that glows in the dark. What fun is that!!!
Here is the whole package my partner will receive. I designed and made a funky pumpkin pincushion. Also included are some Halloween beads from my stash, a fat quarter of Halloween fabric and a small toy mummy.
Here is a close up of my pumpkin pincushion. I will be posting a tutorial and pattern for it later in the month. Don't forget to check out the other swappers. There are some really fun mugrugs posted this month. I can't wait to see which one is mine!!!!
